AshleyAshes Posted July 4, 2016 Share Posted July 4, 2016 In our run of batshit crazy hours as the summer blockbusters roll out, I was hitting the McDonalds on my way to the office on a Saturday morning. In line waiting for my disgusting 'Big Breakfast' a homeless woman in the store approached asked me if I had any change, I explained that I didn't carry cash but I'd buy her breakfast. She asked if I'd buy her a gift certificate instead, so a bought her a $50 one. I didn't know what she'd do with a $50 card. Maybe she'd use it to some more agency in where she ate rather than relying on what homeless facilities offer or maybe she'll sell it for god knows what. I literally earned back the cost of that card in my first hour of work that morning, a hour that I half spent forking dried out eggs and reading news articles on my phone, and she'll still be a homeless woman asking for change. The universe just sucks like that. That afternoon on my break, while still getting paid for the time, I went and spent $1150 on a new bed. She was still out there somewhere being a homeless person asking for change. It's all so fucked. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
